Leena Gade currently works for Multimatic Inc in the UK managing the Vehicle Dynamics Centre but also Race Engineering in the US on the IMSA Mazda DPi Project (no.77 car). Prior to coming to Multimatic, she has worked for a short time as a race engineer in Indycar in 2018, as a Race Engineering Project Manager at Bentley Motorsport in 2016-2017 and prior to that with Audi Sport as a race engineer from 2007 to 2016. Leena graduated from Manchester University with a degree in Aerospace Engineering with Materials Science before working in the automotive industry for 8 years but her passion was always Motorsport and being an engineer in this field so during her weekends and holidays, she would work for free for teams or get her expenses paid. She worked in everything from single seaters to GT cars before making contacts with a Race Engineer from Audi Sport and the rest as they say is history.
Leena´s main function and what she is most known for is her race engineering experience with Audi's LMP1 project from 2011 to 2016 where the car she managed won Le Mans 3 times outright and also 1 World Championship. Since then Leena has tried a number of other championships and in various roles but this is one aspect of Motorsport that she enjoy the most take pride in excelling.
With all the travel, Leena has limited hobbies but she does currently make time for Photography and helping her mum with their garden. She recently learnt some chocolate making skills which she would like to spend more time refining. Whenever Leena is back in the UK, she spends what she can with her family and closest friends.
